2.2. To Save a File

You can save files in the following ways:

Available file formats are:

Of course, only 2D data are exported, even if most formats support 3D coordinates.

The native format is supported directly by GChemPaint, Chemdraw formats and CML are supported through plugins, and other files are saved (and read) using the OpenBabel library http://openbabel.sourceforge.net.

Saving in a file format other than the native format is unsafe because not all features are supported either by the plugins or the OpenBabel library.

Other formats might be supported, depending on the OpenBabel version as explained in the section To Open a File.
